On Saturday mornings, the Korean Church of Westchester is transformed into a schoolhouse via its “Community Development Program – Literacy Development.” For two hours every weekend, for the entirety of the school year, approximately 25 local 3rd -6th graders work on their ELA skills under the guidance of two certified teachers/program coordinators, three assistants and numerous student volunteers. On this Saturday, the lesson focused on paragraph writing, helping the children form a thoughtful topic sentence, add layers of supportive details, and conclude with a strong closing sentence. Other lessons have focused on math, science and the arts, but always with a connection to literacy; students learn that strong writing carries over to many academic disciplines. Additionally, the children participate in field trips during the year, including to Philipsburg Manor, the Tarrytown Music Hall and other venues, giving students the opportunity to diversify their learning experiences. Kids’ Club is proud to support this dynamic program, the positive results of which can to be seen in the children’s class work at school.
